I have a love-hate relationship with typos & autocorrect, I’m not gonna lie.
That sounds crazy doesn’t it? Let me explain.
One: they’re hilarious. When I accidentally send a message with a typo, I crack up. Maybe I’m insane, but I just find them SO amusing.
[ INSERT FUNNY EXAMPLE HERE ]
I tried to find some examples through google, but honestly, they were all much too inappropriate, I couldn’t even consider posting them here. All well. I did end up laughing so loud my mom made me leave the room because she couldn’t hear Rookie Blue (it’s the finale, I think).
Second: They make me sound like an idiot. Especially when they end up in a blog post. Messages with friends are totally different because it’s not supposed to be formal or correct all the time (hello, no one spells things out anymore).
If I spot a typo in a post, I feel instant terror until I fix it and update the post. If it’s been up for a while before I notice, I die a bit inside.
The worst part? I ALWAYS read through my posts several times before publishing them. And I use a spell-checker. Yet, those nasty little typos always find their way into my posts.
I would say I have a pretty crappy spell-checker (and some pretty bad eyes, too), except that the only ones the get through are the ones that are real words, just not the RIGHT word I intended to write. Yeah, I have no excuse for my bad eyes, though.
So, this is a pretty useless post, but I just felt like sharing so…
What’s your take on typos and autocorrect? Do they annoy you? Do you find them funny, like I do?
